Waxing

Warm Wax or Hot Wax

Using either warm or hot wax the entire hair is removed cleanly. Depending on which part of the body the hair is being removed from will denote which type of wax is used.

Warm wax is used on the leg, arm or large areas, delivered from a roller cartridge for speed and accuracy and less mess.

Hot wax is excellent for removing coarser hairs on the bikini or underarm area eliminating much of the discomfort that some people experience.

Comfort or Discomfort

Some people find waxing quite an uncomfortable affair, some say it smarts but is tolerable whilst other simply sit there and don’t bat an eyelid (lucky them!).

To help with the discomfort there are a few things that may help:

  • If required, I can use a light anesthetic spray just prior to waxing. It is a peppermint based spray that just takes the edge off any discomfort.
  • Paracetamol if taken 30 minutes before your appointment.
  • Hormonal, depending on where you are in your cycle, will have a reflection on the level of discomfort.
  • Regular waxing does make for a less painful experience, the body simply gets used to it and the hair to be removed is not full length.

Finally I take my time to make sure you are comfortable. I won’t rush, known as speed waxing, unless of course you want me to. I will soothe the area as I go along. If you want to wax an area you have never had done before, I’m happy to do a patch test so you can see what it feels like first, before making that commitment. Invariable people are happy to carry on, having realized it wasn’t so bad.

 

Before you arrive

  • You need approx 4-5mm of hair growth to allow the wax to grip onto the hair.
  • Don’t use body lotion/oil the day of your appointment, on the area to be waxed.

Homecare - next 24 hours

  • No swimming, sunbeds or sauna’s (showering is fine)
  • No deodorant until the next morning if underarm was waxed
  • Avoid touching the area

As hair begins to regrows

  • Gently exfoliate the area to prevent ingrowing hairs
